Tooth Extractions

as low as $25/mo

Removing a natural tooth is never our first line of treatment at Riverwood Dental. We offer a number of proven general dentistry treatments in tooth repair. However, there are times in which a damaged or decayed tooth simply can’t be saved. When a tooth is beyond repair or a threat to your oral health, our dentist may recommend a tooth extraction. Rest assured that we perform tooth extractions with conservative techniques and maximum patient comfort.

When Is Tooth Extraction Necessary?

There are various reasons why a natural tooth might require extraction to alleviate pain or protect your overall oral health. These reasons include:
Severe Decay
When decay reaches an advanced stage, extraction may be the only viable option.

Advanced Gum Disease
Untreated gum disease can lead to tooth instability, necessitating extraction.

Extensive Damage
Trauma or injury that causes irreparable damage to a tooth may warrant extraction.

Orthodontic Preparation
Sometimes, tooth extraction is part of the orthodontic treatment plan to achieve proper alignment.

Persistent Baby Teeth
If baby teeth do not naturally fall out, extraction may be necessary to allow permanent teeth to emerge.

Impacted Wisdom Tooth
Wisdom teeth, if impacted or causing issues, may require extraction.

Regardless of the reason for a tooth extraction, Riverwood Dental is committed to ensuring a positive and rewarding experience. Our convenient scheduling and affordable financing options, including in-house payment plans, aim to make the process seamless. If tooth replacement becomes necessary, our office offers dental bridges, implant restorations, or dentures to restore a confident and complete smile.

The Extraction Process

Whether due to poor dental hygiene or a traumatic mouth injury, the removal of a damaged tooth is sometimes necessary to safeguard the rest of your smile. Our skilled dentist employs meticulous techniques to extract the tooth while preserving as much healthy bone and tissue as possible. Patients benefit from modern dental anesthetics and sedation dentistry to ensure a comfortable extraction procedure. Before leaving our office, our dental team provides comprehensive post-operative instructions to facilitate optimal healing and comfort at home.

For comfortable tooth extractions under the guidance of an experienced family dentist, choose Riverwood Dental. We are dedicated to prioritizing your smile health at every stage of life.
